You go, Vincent, Chris, and Gracie!! And especially loved that Gracie threw the definition of sport in his face.
Gracie is a BOSS.
That idiot (Ergos) doesn't get it.
What an idiot. Too bad there isn't a way to virtually egg someone's Twitter.
He should go for a few FS lessons, he might understand why it IS possible to fairly objectively say one jump was executed better than another, not just a matter of taste- besides they do grade eg ski jumping and snowboarding based on style as well, and athletes opinion sometimes differ from the referees', and they are sports..
He is most probably one of those sportscasters who would deem hot dog eating contests and poker as competitive sports. Thank you ESPN....not
Right, and he isn't a journalist
It is a sport *and* an art.
i look at it this way. Ergos is a sports caster/reporter. Figure skating is OFFICIALLY a sport. His is hired to report, facts, figures, events, in "sports" that he is assigned to, and NOT give his opinions what he thinks is a "sport" or not. He has a right to his opinion and to express it privately, but NOT while he is on this particular job.
This idiot believes you’re judged on what music you choose! Come on . What a hack.
This is 2018 and yet we have sports writers like Edward Egros who believes ice skating is not a sport
The worst was that the guy who wrote the original tweet Egros was responding to was trying to explain to Courtney Hicks what the rules of figure skating were.
So, this idiot must not regard women’s gymnastic as a sport either???
Let's also include slope style, half pipe and other similar sports. Try telling that to Shaun White!
Gracie Gold is obsessed with tweeting and social media.
Sounds like a road back to troubled waters.
Good for Vincent Zhou! https://www.teenvogue.com/story/olympic-figure-skaters-drag-anchor
